The HME Detection Card is designed to detect the presence of homemade explosive compounds. HMEs are made using widely distributed materials such as fertilizer and gasoline. Since they are manufactured with off-the-shelf materials, HME's are the predominate explosives used in terrorist attacks.
This card offers increased sensitivity for Inorganic Nitrates, Chlorates, and Peroxides. Detected explosives include TATP, one of the most prevalent explosive used in recent acttacks. Along with KNO3 found in many black powders, IED's, and fireworks.
The easy-to-use swipe detection system provides industry leading presumptive testing results at a lower cost. Must be used with a SEEKER product. The Detection Card is the tool that allows the user to physically collect a sample of trace or bulk residue and contains the patented colorimetric delivery system to provide accurate, repeatable and reliable detection.
